New Project: Build a TurtleBot Robotic Arm (Trossen Robotics version)

The TurtleBot AX-12 Robotic Arm is a 5 degree-of-freedom robotic arm and an easy addition to the TurtleBot ROS robot platform. This hardware kit comes with everything needed to physically assemble and mount the arm.

The kit can be purchased here: https://www.trossenrobotics.com/p/Turtle…

It is a ready-to-build kit based upon the original TurtleBot Robot Arm found here: Build an Arm for Your TurtleBot

This build guide assumes that you know how AX-12 brackets are mounted to AX-12 servos. You must seat M2 nuts into the rows of sockets prior to bolting them down. Please refer to this video for instruction:

We also recommend the use of Loc-tite or a similar threadlocker:

Please note that the AX-12A servos that come with this kit have pre-assigned IDs.
